Syrian National Reconciliation Minister Ali Haidar told Russian news officials that the idea of having the Syrian opposition gather in Moscow for consultations is “pure theory” , unrealistic, and is impossible to implement in practice.
Coordinator for the Council of Syrian Tribes, Abbas Habib, said earlier Wednesday that it is possible that preliminary consultations may take play in Moscow in the near future, followed by a reconciliation conference in Damascus.
“The Syrian government has already initiated a political project called ‘Internal Reconciliation and Internal Dialogue,’ the Syrian president suggested it in his last speech,” the minister said.
“Additionally, all international efforts are directed toward conducting the first and second rounds of the pre-planned Geneva 2 international conference. There was also talk of the Geneva 3 conference,” Haidar said.
